Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa and her Karnataka counterpart Jagadish Shettar will meet here on Thursday to discuss the long-standing Cauvery water dispute.

The Tamil Nadu leader will arrive with a 10-member delegation and the meeting is scheduled to take place at the Leela Palace hotel at 3pm, said reports.

The meeting comes in the wake of the Supreme Court´s Monday direction asking both the chief ministers to meet and attempt to solve the problem in the larger interest of the farmers of both states.

The last time such a meeting took place was in 1997, in Chennai, when M Karunanidhi and JH Patel met to discuss the issue.
